congress whacks the power under the commerce power or necessary and proper power to impose a mandate to purchase insurance. of course it says the statute was valid under the taxing power but only did that by read characterizing the statute as not a mandate to purchase insurance but as a tax on the status of not having insurance so construed they upheld it as a valid exercise of taxing power. it is worth recognizing that that is a different statute from the statute congress passed and it has different practical effects. most law-abiding citizens if told there is a constitutionally valid mandate to purchase insurance will purchase insurance. i think most people if told that they have to pay a tax if they don't purchase insurance will want to know how much is the tax and how much does the insurance cost and they will make a rational decision whether to purchase health insurance and some people will purchase insurance and some people will choose to pay the tax. the practical consequence i believe is that the number of individuals who will remain uninsured will be higher under a regime th

after mitt romney addressed the hispanic chamber of commerce, anne, in los angeles. obviously, a group that the republicans have said they want to make some inroads against. how serious are those comments, do you think? >> oh, i mean, look, this is going to reverberate i think with all kinds of demographic groups. it's going to reverberate with working-class white people who don't pay taxes. it's going to reverberate with women, it's going to reverberate with military families. i don't think there's any group that in some way won't either hear about what he said or see themselves somehow reflected in it, but i agree with shira. i think that given their focus has been pretty intently on the base for all this time, usually you try to do two things -- you try to win the base, turn out the base and win, peel off some independents in the middle. they're going to have to re-double their efforts if they want to go to the middle again. >> i want to bring in david corn, washington bureau chief for "mother jones." good to see you. also, author of the book "showdown." david, give us a little back
